Penny Thomas-Karley   

Co-opted Governor – SEND - Literacy Standards

My husband and I have lived in Toynton All Saints since 2004, when we moved up from London.  I have been teaching since 1991 and have worked in various secondary schools in both South London and Lincolnshire.  For many years I worked in special education, initially as a teacher and later as a SENDCO. For the last decade or so I have been teaching mainly English at KS3 and KS4.  My knowledge of special needs and the secondary curriculum are useful, particularly with KS2 and KS3 transition.

Since I live in the village, I am able to attend most of the events that are held out of school hours and have enjoyed seeing all the excellent initiatives that the school has introduced even in the short time I have been a Governor.


Julia Greenfield

Associate Member - SENCO

I became a class teacher at Toynton All Saints Primary School in November 2007 and have since become the Special Education Needs and Disability Co-ordinator and Key Stage 2 Lead. Alongside my teaching and SEND experience, I have three primary–age daughters, so  am able to offer both a school and parent perspective. I absolutely love working in such a nurturing, positive and happy school and I want to ensure that this ethos continues.
